Society of Midland Authors Announces 2012 Winners and Finalists

The Society of Midland Authors announced its winners and finalists last week, marking its 55th celebration of authors who live in, were born in, or have strong ties to the Midwest.

The two winners in the adult fiction category are Nick Dybek (son of Stuart, a two-time winner of the same award) for his novel When Captain Flint Was Still A Good Man, and Jack Driscoll for his short story collection The World of a Few Minutes Ago.

Winners who live in the Chicagoland area include Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg for You Were Never in Chicago in the adult nonfiction category, and Jonathan Messinger, former books editor for TimeOut Chicago, receives the James Friend Memorial Award for Literary Criticism.
